Hi, I had a question.

When there is a update on the Nintendo Switch version, is there a place where I can see the patch notes (since those are a little bit different then the steam version)?
And I want to say that i really like the game so far and can't wait for more content.

Thank you very much Yram!

Yes we'd probably find a place to announce patch notes, but we haven't decided where yet. We'll definitely let everyone know via Social Media though :)

Thanks again for your query and your encouragement!

okay, thanks for letting me know :)

Thanks for the prompt update! Interested to try out the movement changes. Cheers!
Many users with multi-monitor configurations have a BIG problem: the game decides which monitor to use itself (ignoring the default main monitor in windows)
I have already reimbursed the product, and I have advised 400+ people to buy it until the bug is fixed.

What does the developer say about this problem that has been present for months and involved so many players?
